We’re thrilled to announce we have signed Championship left back Brendan Galloway as our brand ambassador. Raised in Milton Keynes Brendan played for MK Dons, making his first team debut at 15 years old. He has since gone on to play for Everton in the Premier League, represent England at age levels U17, 18, 19 and 21 and now plays for Luton Town Football Club.
As a passionate supporter of YMCA Milton Keynes, Brendan is keen to spend time with our young people in the hope that he can encourage and inspire them to reach their full potential.
Brendan visited us a few months back to meet some of our young people and to find out more about our new campus that’s due to open early in the new year. It’s fair to say his visit left a lasting impact and he was eager to do more to raise awareness around the issue of youth homelessness in Milton Keynes and the lack of affordable housing in our town.
“MK has given so much to me and my family. I am excited about the journey ahead, working with a great organisation which has put in an extreme amount of work and dedication into supporting local young people. Being named an ambassador of YMCA Milton Keynes is a proud moment for me, an exciting time and a role I very much look forward in fulfilling”, says Brendan.
Brendan will be visiting YMCA Milton Keynes as often as he can and is excited about running football training sessions and workshops with our young people.
Simon Green, CEO of YMCA Milton Keynes said “We’re delighted to announce our partnership with Brendan. He’s a great role model for our young people. He’s a very professional and polite young man whose passion for the game, coupled with his determination to succeed will help motivate and inspire our young people.”
Stay tuned to hear more from our brand ambassador, Brendan Galloway in the coming weeks and months.
